That's ok, it's his standard answer. Pretty sure either his wife or dog ran off with a guy who drives a diesel, based on some of his posts! LOL

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe it's a childhood trauma. A stranger in a diesel approached him when he was young.

I've never seen such a one-man crusade against the evils of an engine. Definitely PTSD.

No, just seeing how bad the post-2007 diesels are.

The right balance of counseling and pharma will smooth out some of those sharp edges.

LOL...
So will differentiating between early and later Tier IV systems as well as having just a wee bit pf common sense and knowledge about the proper use and operation of said vehicle. It sort of defeats the everything is the easy button and you can go through life as dumb as a post just fine theory, though.

Edit: Not meaning you specifically jarlaxle, but those in general that think they can get in anything, turn the key and only worry about the traffic and what's playing on spotify.

That said, I fully understand the conditions, limitations and greater propensity for issues. Heck, anything has a greater propensity for issues than the opposite, aka not having it in the first place removes all propensity for issue.
And there's a reason I jumped on buying a deleted truck last year. But most of that reason was the overall deal and I would have made the same decision if it wasn't deleted. Receiving the original system laying in the bed of the truck in pieces was just the icing on the cake. Would still been a good cake the other way around though!

I accept your concession.

Are you just trolling, or do you have a vested interest in people buying money-pit trucks? Do you own a diesel truck repair shop, perhaps? DO you sell some sort of snake-oil miracle product?

Nope. Not at all. It just catches my attention when I see someone banging out the same note day in and day out and calling it music. It sounds more like Yoko Ono to me. [emoticon]

We've never met, so I have to conjure up my own mental image. Am I close?

Anyway, your obsession against diesels seems uniquely bizarre. I've seen just about everything here, but I haven't seen anyone else with same crusade as you, which makes it ripe fodder for poking some fun.

This is exactly what he's talking about. Dude, sometimes it helps to look in the mirror when you begin to think everyone in the world is wrong but yourself.
I lunched the transmission at 60k miles in my last gasser truck, yet never lost a diesel truck trans yet (knock on wood). By your theory, one should never buy a gasser truck then either. Guess we better break out the hay-burners again. Because there's no issues or concern with them.....right?

PS, if you're speaking tongue in cheek jarl, it's not coming across that way...
